Ohio Broach & Machine Company has designed and manufactured its horizontal broaching machines to assure the rigidity and stability required for precise tool tracking. Available in two models with a range of capacities, cutting speeds and strokes, these machines feature reliable electrical and hydraulic systems, and many more best-in-class features, ensuring there is a machine available for just about every broaching need.
The company’s horizontal broaching machines are available in capacities ranging from five to 35 tons, and with strokes from 20 to 90 inches. Its HC line of machines utilizes a close-grained, high-tensile, one-piece cast iron guide head, while its HF line employs a continuously welded and thermally stressed relieved fabricated steel guide head.
Each machine uses hardened and ground alloy steel machine ways to guide the pull heads, which are equipped with precision ground wear pads that are easily accessible for replacement when needed. The rapid return of the broach pull head to its starting position is a standard feature on all of the company’s horizontal broach machine models. In addition, all of its pull heads can easily be adjusted for vertical tool alignment with the industry standard two-inch, eight-pitch female thread for broach puller attachment.
The electrical system incorporated in each unit features an Allen-Bradley programmable logic controller, which provides consistent and reliable machine regulation for the variety of operational functions associated with broaching. Meanwhile, the machine’s hydraulic system is the time tested, open-loop configuration, which features a regenerative circuit that makes the rapid return feature possible. Powerful yet energy-efficient, it is the proven workhorse required for demanding broaching applications.
